He said that Gwinnett Police responded to about 30,000 traffic collisions last year and about a third of those involved injuries. Sadly, 57 people died in traffic accidents last year in Gwinnett, including 19 pedestrians.

Gwinnett County voters will go to the polls March 19 to consider expansion of our transit options through a contract with MARTA.

It would also mean the establishment of a one-cent sales tax to pay for the transit improvements and expansion.

He had been with the police department since October 2015.
